Environment, Health and Safety

Leonardo manages its business activities minimizing impacts on the environment, using natural and energy resources efficiently and ensuring the protection of people and assets.


Environmental and health and safety management is based on the implementation of management models that best suit the specifics of each business, with particular attention to compliance with plans and risk evaluation and assessment programs and to the ongoing awareness and training of staff.



By the end of 2016, 47 Leonardo’s sites are equipped with an ISO 14001:2004 certified environmental management system, where 67% of the workforce operates.
The Leonardo sites are progressively starting the transition to ISO 14001:2015 standard.



Energy management in Leonardo combines efficiency and environmental sustainability, with the aim of containing energy consumption, by adopting more efficient plant solutions and good management practices. This is coupled with the use of environmental-friendly energy sources, which help to progressively reduce Leonardo's carbon footprint. By the end of 2016 75% of the electricity consumed came from renewable sources.


Energy initiatives are coordinated by Leonardo Energy Manager, working collaboratively with the referents identified in each Division, supported by a dedicated and specialized department of Leonardo Global Solutions.


In Leonardo 6 sites are equipped with an Energy Management System certified according to ISO 50001: 2011 standard.
